Go faster with Improv Express!
The Improv Program is a complete foundation in the principles of scenic improvisation as practiced at The Second City. Based in the work of Viola Spolin, this three-level program covers all elements of the improvisational process. Meeting twice-weekly, Improv Express students explore the same concepts taught in our Improv Levels A-E classes but in a shorter time period. Graduation from the Improv Express program fulfills the improvisational prerequisite to audition for the Conservatory Program.
